Well worth reading as an alternative to the usual footballer biography but it does have its down side. Quinn does repeat himself a lot and there are areas (such as mentioned by a previous reviewer) that he does not explore in sufficient detail. I would have liked to had a better view on the Jocky Club ban but this was glossed over.
This book was recommended to me by a football loving mate as I am no lover in listening to what most footballers have to say! The subject as his ghost writer have got to grips with the subject's life and even written about the death of his mother in a very touching maner. Quinn can take a joke on himself the story about him being in a supermarker queue with his girlfriend behind two girls who, seeing a headline about Newcastle's new star -signing turn to the back pages of the local newspaper, look at the headline and say "Who the .........is Mickey Quinn." He described himself as being the quickest footballer over one yard and needed only this to be a regular scorer in the top league of English football and a bit of a legend.
This is so much more than the normal ghost-written tat that comes out just before Christmas. It is a thoughtfully written and well-written book and at its end he even tells how much he earned and how much of that he spent!
The undoubted highpoint of his career was his time at Newcastle, where he justifiably became a cult hero with his goal return and down to earth approach to life and the game itself. You can't help wondering what might have been for Quinny if he'd managed to get on with Keegan and prolonged his time on Tyneside - England perhaps?
You can't help but admire his determination in a career change as a horse trainer and the success he's had. Good on yer Quinny, keep on sticking it to the toffs!
A very good read ans highly recommended.
